About “Speaking of Science”

Posted by jns on 27 July 2009

Time was, when we were small, mere fledgeling science nerds, our mothers would observe us reading yet another book about the wonders of nature and suggest that we might be better off out playing in nature by asking the rhetorical question: “Must you always have your nose buried in a book?”

Rhetorical it might have been, but time has shown that the answer was “yes!”. There are still vastly more books about science and technology than we can ever get through, but we do our best. So many are very good, surprisingly few are very bad, but we like to write about them all here so that our fellow nose buriers can make a start at prioritizing their own too-long to-be-read lists.
